Atlantis The Palm: New Mega Entertainment Resort On Palm Jumeirah!

Atlantis The Palm is the new Mega Entertainment Resort that will be officially opening on Palm Jumeirah, Dubai this coming September '08. This opening will be a truly GREAT EVENT for Dubai, The UAE and all of The Gulf. Why? Beacause Atlantis is far, far more than just another luxury 5-Star hotel opening in Dubai. Atlantis is an entirely new Mega Themed Entertainment Destination and the first in a long line of spectacular themed Mega Resorts for Dubai. The opening of Atlantis The Palm represents the beginning of a New Era for Dubai. An Era, in my opinion, that will lead to Dubai and all of The UAE becoming the number one tourist destination in the world!

Atlantis The Palm is the creation of Kerzner International Holdings Ltd. These are the same people who created the wildly popular Atlantis Resort & Casino in the Bahamas. Atlantis The Palm is almost an exact duplicate of the magnificent Atlantis Bahamas Resort, however Atlantis The Palm will of course have no casino gaming. According to Sol Kerzner, Chairman of Kerzner International:

'This is an exciting time for the Middle East and for Kerzner International. With the introduction of a new world icon in The Palm Jumeirah and our position as the flagship resort of this icon, Atlantis The Palm is situated as the new gateway to this incredible region. Out of a vision that married the wonders of marine life with stunning elegance and sweeping views of the Arabian Gulf alongside the most exciting water playground in this part of the world, we have developed an experience within Atlantis that is truly different than the existing pleasures of Dubai. We're very proud of the final product and cannot wait to share it in September when we open our doors.'

The theme of Atlantis The Palm is based on the legend of the ancient Lost Continent of Atlantis. The entire resort has an almost magical aquatic look to it that will captivate and dazzle all who visit! I am very impressed with Atlantis The Palm and I feel it is the perfect vehicle to launch the New Era of Dubai Mega Entertainment Projects.

Atlantis The Palm will feature:

> The Royal Towers Hotel. A gigantic 1539 room hotel whose guestrooms and suites will each have private balconies that will overlook the Arabian Gulf or different areas of the beautiful Palm Jumeirah. Some of the magnificent accommodations at this hotel will include:

- The Imperial Club. A resort within a resort offering 150 rooms and suites with exclusive services and even a private club lounge.

- Lost Chambers Suites. These are some of the largest suites you will find anywhere. Each is a full 3 storeys high with grand views of the Ambassador Lagoon! This is where I want to stay when I visit!

- Bridge Suites. These suites are located 22 storeys above Atlantis and accessed by a private elevator. Nothing but the best!

> Aquaventure. An aquatic playground of over 18 million litres of water, consisting of extraordinary rides with cascades, tidal waves and rapids, and the Mesopotamian-styled Ziggurat temple reaching over 30 metres into the sky and featuring seven different water slides- two of which catapult riders through shark-filled lagoons!

> The Lost Chambers. This ride brings the myth of Atlantis to life through a maze of underground tunnels offering underwater views into the boulevards of the ruins of Atlantis.

> Dolphin Bay. A 4.5 hectare state-of-the-art dolphin education and conservation center allowing guests the opportunity to meet and interact with dolphins in an unparalleled facility.

> The Ambassador Lagoon. An 11 million litre marine habitat and underwater exhibit that is home to several hundred species of marine life, with a viewing panel looking right into the mystical ruins of Atlantis.

> Fine Dining. Some of the best restaurants in the world will be located at Atlantis The Palm including; Michel Rostang's French Brasserie, Giorgio Locatelli's Ronda Locatelli, Nobuyuki Matsuhisa and actor Robert DeNiro's sushi restaurant Nobu, Santi Santamaria's Ossiano and many more.

> The Avenues. This is the promenade where the restaurants will be located along with a nightclub and a variety of upscale retail shops.

> Destination Discovery. A special facility for young childern through teenagers where they can have fun on various water themed rides. There will also be a no adults private club called Club Rush as well as the latest SEGA gaming equipment to try out.

Atlantis The Palm will be BIG. Real BIG! Big for Dubai! Big for The UAE! Big for The Gulf! And as truly magnificent as Atlantis The Palm is.....this is only the beginning of what is to come!
